85th Annual Placer County Fair set for June 22-25
Roseville, Calif.- The Placer County Fair is looking for one-of-a-kind creations and mouth-watering sensations from community members dreaming of Blue Ribbons to small-business owners seeking money-making opportunities.
The Placer County Fair which takes placer in Roseville is accepting applications from residents to compete for awards in dozens of categories – from baking to beer-making – and vendors looking to sell their arts and crafts or food at one of the largest and longest-running events in Placer Valley.
The Fair is also looking for additional corporate sponsors interested in connecting with thousands of fairgoers and recruiting more volunteers that help make the event such a success.
The Placer County Fair opens @the Grounds on Thursday, June 22, and continues through Sunday, June 25. The fair is open 5-11 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and noon to 11 p.m. Sunday at 700 Event Center Drive in Roseville (formerly known as the Placer County Fairgrounds).
You can learn more – including how to apply as a vendor, competitor in the still exhibits, corporate sponsor or even as a volunteer online.
